Hello

I have just start working with XSLT files and make a sample XSLT file. With following code fo "helloworld.xslt"
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">></xsl:stylesheet>
<xsl:template match="/">
      <html>
            <head>
                  <title>First Sample</title>
            </head>
            <body>
                  <p><xsl:value-of select="greeting"/></p>
            </body>
      </html>
</xsl:template>

my XML file is like as

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="D:\Testing XSLs\helloworld.xslt" ?>
<greeting>Hello, world!</greeting>

When i try to run the XML file a error message is coming just as follow

Error in helloworld.xslt
Only one top level element is allowed in an XML document

Please tell why this message is coming and how can i remove the error

Hi jeebukarthikeyan,

that doesn't really solve the problem
The problem with the above XSLT is that the template should be inside the stylesheet element
The error is here:
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">></xsl:stylesheet>
By putting the <xsl:template> element after the stylesheet element
and not inside it, you have two root elements, so your stylesheet is no longer a welformed XML document,
hence your error

here is how you should do this

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
    <xsl:template match="/">
        <html>
            <head>
                <title>First Sample</title>
            </head>
            <body>
                <p><xsl:value-of select="greeting"/></p>
            </body>
        </html>
    </xsl:template>
</xsl:stylesheet>

I tested the above stylesheet and it works

Cheers!

Geert
